About:

When Erick’s parents moved to Connecticut for opportunity and to escape racism in the South, they opened a small convenience store in New Haven with the little money they had. Erick worked in the store every day after school and watched his parents serve the community while struggling to make ends meet.

Through hard work, determination, and luck, Erick became the first in his family to graduate from college and then law school.

Today, he is a partner at a prestigious Connecticut law firm, working in the firm’s Public and Private Finance Department. He has experience with bonds and investing on behalf of Connecticut's towns and cities.

Erick has seen firsthand the importance of breaking the racial and generational wealth gap and the need to take bold steps to establish programs that promote financial and economic stability for all people. That’s why he's running for Treasurer and why he's so passionate about this work.

A great return to our Annual Spring Breakfast! A highlight of the breakfast was a speech from 5th grader Anaya Uttamchandani, Ms President US/Wilton, who spoke about diversity and inclusion in Wilton Public Schools. Ms President US motivates and prepares girls to aim for the highest civic leadership positions, and we hope that Anaya's poise and passion take her on the road to public service! We also heard from Dr. Aaron Weinstein of Fairfield University on his take on the intersection of shared moral values and politics. And of course, passionate and inspiring talks from Attorney General William Tong, State Senator Will Haskell, State Rep and candidate for Secretary of the State Stephanie Thomas, candidate for State Senator Ceci Maher and candidate for State Rep Keith Denning. We also honored our Democrats of the Year, Melissa Spohn, Vicki Rossi and Leslie Holmes. Thanks to all who contributed the time, energy and baked goods to make it a wonderful morning! ...

The hardest thing for me was how many older people - especially women - were at the rally and angry because they thought they had won the fight for choice and personal control over their reproductive health. And they see it being torn away after 50 years.
